The guesthouse is not far from the airport, it is close to the mall and other restaurants and just one street from lake Victoria. Claire, the owner, is very friendly and she make sure that everything is perfect. It is spacious, clean and comfortable. It was my third time here and can’t see myself staying elsewhere in Entebbe.

We had a fantastic stay with Claire. She was very welcoming and made every effort to make the stay a happy one. the house has enchanting gardens and is in a perfect location for lakeside lunch, and a visit to the zoo and botanical gardens. We loved the layout for families as you could put the children to bed and sit and eat in the main room. The children also loved claire’s son and playing with his toys! thank you for a great stay - we will be back!

Stayed at start and end of trip. Great place to relax. Handy for lake, restaurants and mall, but very quiet location. Clean and spacious room. Lovely breakfast, which we ate on the veranda, overlooking the beautiful garden. Welcoming and friendly host

A pretty home in easy walking distance to beaches, restaurants, and shops. Claire was very accommodating and even let us use her kitchen to make a meal one night. Breakfast was simple and freshly prepared. Really good value and a lot more laid back than the hotels in the area
